Local Christians taking part in the outreach day

Local Christians are being urged to take part in the next ‘Global Outreach Day’ which has been described as “one of the Church’s best kept secrets.”

Now in its fifth year, this outreach day on May 28 aims to encourage Christians worldwide “to show they care by sharing the love of God and the message of hope with at least one other person”.

“It’s a good news day!” says Peter Spreckley, who is a leader with the Christian businessmen’s fellowship, FGB UK & Ireland. He adds: “All Christians can be part of this day, for we’re all called to reach out to our neighbours.  There are many ways of doing so, for example: one-on-one; in small groups; caring and sharing by doing something good for the needy, or home visits.”

On last year’s Global Outreach Day – “G.O.D.” for short – millions of Christians worldwide shared their faith, with the idea of “the whole Church going out to a lost world.”  Locally, ten members of St John’s Southbourne went out, many for the first time and hesitantly, “but they came back rejoicing and asking whether they had to wait for next year to do it again!” says Peter Spreckley. “If we each do our part, together we can reach our neighbourhood.”
